Not only will it give you much needed rehydration, but it will also jump-start your metabolism.

2. Steam your clothes from your daily shower.

Put away the iron and ironing board, and just hang your garments as you take a steamy, hot shower.

3. Prepare your outfits at the beginning of the week.

Don't waste time trying to put an outfit together. Pick out your week's wardrobe on Sunday to save time every morning.

Since you're already out of bed, there's no temptation to "hit the snooze" and go back to bed.

5. Awaken by a peaceful alarm clock.

Start the day a little less grouchy by subtly rising via light or soothing sounds. No need for a startling beep to disrupt your slumber.
